OBJECTIVE To evaluate the technical feasibility and the sensitivity, specificity and accuracy of extended cervical mediastinoscopy (ECM) in the staging of bronchogenic carcinoma (BC) of the left lung. METHODS From 1998 to 2003, 89 patients underwent routine ECM for staging of BC of the left lung. In 2004, positron emission tomography (PET) was included in(More)
Dumbbell shaped epidural cavernomas are uncommon lesions. Of these, the extraforaminal extension is usually limited, and the lesions are removed surgically by an extended laminectomy. We present two cases of dumbbell shaped epidural cavernomas with a considerable intrathoracic growth. They were resected through a combined thoracotomy and laminectomy. Only(More)
OBJECTIVE The objective of this study is to evaluate the accuracy of extended cervical mediastinoscopy (ECM) in the staging of bronchogenic carcinoma (BC) of the left lung based on our updated experience. METHODS From 1998 to 2003, 89 patients underwent routine ECM for staging of BC of the left lung. In 2004, routine positron emission tomography (PET) was(More)
BACKGROUND The aim of this study is to analyze the survival of patients with non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC) without clinical suspicion of mediastinal lymph node involvement who underwent complete resection and whose tumors were finally proven to be pathologic N2 (pN2). METHODS This is a retrospective study of a prospective database from January 2004(More)
BACKGROUND The aim of this study was to evaluate the results of video-assisted mediastinoscopic lymphadenectomy (VAMLA) for staging of non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC). METHODS This was a prospective observational study of all consecutive VAMLAs performed from January 2010 to April 2015 for staging NSCLC. For left lung cancers, extended cervical(More)
